07-27-2016, 09:11 AM #2Court documents show that Remington was stripped, tortured with a grinder, beaten with a baseball bat and injected with methamphetamine and heroin inside the shop. Afterward, Remington was dumped in the street less than a mile from the auto body shop, court documents state.
When Remington was found, he was not breathing, court documents state. He was rushed to OHSU, where doctors placed him on a ventilator and treated him for a heroin overdose and serious head injury, court documents state.When he was being questioned by detectives with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Bartol told investigators that around Christmas 2012, he had killed Remington, court documents state. Bartol told a detective that Remington had “snitched” on him, so Bartol “put cigarettes out in his ear,” “duct taped him up,” and “poured gas on him,” court documents state.
Bartol told investigators he had planned to shoot Remington, but Remington overdosed on the drugs “so he rolled him up in a blanket and dumped his body behind a business,” court documents state.Bartol is also facing a separate indictment that accuses him and three other men of multiple felonies as part of an ongoing white supremacy gang and shooting investigation. Police said the incident occurred Feb. 12, 2013 at the same auto body shop as the Dec. 21, 2012 incident.
In that case, Bartol is accused of forcing the victim, identified by police as Ronald Murphy, into a spray booth inside the auto body shop. Inside, he was “tortured, robbed, beaten and shot twice before being dumped on Southeast Powell Boulevard.” Prosecutors, in court documents, claim Murphy almost died as a result of the injuries and has “serious permanent injuries.”
During the questioning with MCSO, Bartol told investigators he was trying to get information out of Murphy and when he was unable, Bartol said he “blew his side out with a .380,” court documents state. Bartol said he attempted to shoot Murphy a second time because he thought he missed, court documents state.
07-27-2016, 09:25 AM #3Four men have been indicted with multiple felonies as part of an on-going white supremacy gang and shooting investigation, including one man who already is accused of killing an inmate in Marion County’s jail.
Joseph Gerald Schwab, Michael Philip Donald O’Malley, Michael Newcomb and David Ray Bartol are each charged with two counts of attempted aggravated murder, two counts first-degree assault, four counts of first-degree kidnapping, two counts of first-degree robbery with a firearm, one count of second-degree robbery with a firearm, and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon with a firearm.

The leader of the Krude Rude Brood gang was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison, court records show.
David Corbit has been the subject of multiple state and federal investigations into subject drug and white supremacy gang activity.
In Dec. 2013, authorities launched “Operation White Christmas.” It resulted in more than 60 gang-related suspects being charged in more than 40 federal indictments and 11 state court cases. Corbit was one of the last people charged and arrested as part of Operation White Christmas, according to court documents.
Corbit, officials say, is the co-owner of an auto-shop called “Tom’s Auto” in Southeast Portland.Detectives say Corbit used the auto body shop as a place for his colleagues to hang out at and share and distribute meth.
“Witnesses also revealed this shop could also be used as a place to torture persons who crossed Brood members the wrong way,” according to federal court documents.
Federal and state prosecutors and Corbit's lawyers reached a global settlement that resulted in the sentence.
The agreement covers a drug-trafficking case against Corbit in federal court and two cases in state court that accused Corbit of kidnapping and beating a man in December 2012 and shooting a man in May 2012 during a home invasion robbery.A nearly yearlong investigation of the gang turned up drug trafficking at the auto shop. Surveillance of the shop on May 31, 2013, for example, revealed a motorist stopped at the shop in the middle of the night. She claimed to agents that she was there to get her clutch fixed, but officers found a quarter pound of methamphetamine in the car's glove box, Bolstad said. Other cooperating witnesses told agents that Corbit had warned the driver that police were watching his shop and sent her away with the meth, Bolstad said.
In federal court, Corbit pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.Corbit will face five years of supervised release after he completes his prison time. He was also ordered to complete anger management counseling and not possess any alcohol, not associate with any known gang members and not enter any gambling facility.
